I Hate Technology

My phone is having issues, and I am not due for an upgrade until January.  That is probably not doable, and I haven’t figured out what I am going to do about it.  Since it is still working now, I will be trying to get a bunch of blogs pre-loaded this coming week.

There is so much going through my mind, good and bad and crazy and crazier.  It will be interesting to see how things play out in the coming months.  Stay tuned!

Baby Steps

When I lose 7 more pounds, I will have officially lost 10% of my body weight, and be at a weight I havent been at since college, which was 10 years ago.  There is still much I want to do, but even the little milestones are worth celebrating. 
This blog will never be about weight loss or anything, but it’s a good reminder to keep working at all my goals.  Happy Wednesday!

My Jewelry Armoire

One of the purchases from my road trip was a jewelry armoire.  I have been searching for one for more than a year, but hadnt found one big enough or that I liked enough.  For $40, this one is amazing! 
Here it is empty:

And I filled it with jewelry over the weekend.  I dont keep any fancy/expensive jewelry in my house, but I still needed storage for my day-to-day jewelry.

Im sure I could fit more if I tried, but right now it holds all my jewelry perfectly.  No more jewelry for me for a while, I think I have enough.

Madd Cat Monthly Subscription – July

As you know, I am behind on swatches.  This is the MCM for July.  I am in love with these colors!  As I posted before, Mo will be closing down Madd Style Cosmetics, so I highly recommend liking MSC on facebook to catch some great deals in the next couple months!
All swatches over deLeon Eye Primer.

The sub also came with a code for 34% off and a free pigment!  I really love Mudd Slinger, the purple/pink shimmer in the brown will win me over every time!

This Week.

It’s only Monday and I am already over this week.  One of my close friends found out via facebook that her father died this weekend, and has been dealing with that since.  The memorial will be Thursday.  I have had a handful of computer problems since setting up my new work computer, and it’s causing unecessary stress and problems.  My mom called today to tell me about a medical problem that might lead to needing a stint in her neck.  I have a horrible migraine, and nothing is helping.  I finally said fuck it, and am working on some cleaning and organizing because I can’t just lay in bed because my head hurts.

I really do wish I could just sleep this week away, and wake up to a better week next week.  Instead, I will be working on crossing things off my to-do list and playing with makeup.  Hopefully I can swatch some of my recent purchases.  Here’s to hoping this week gets better, or at least goes by quickly.
